You'd better check your bank and credit card statements. Lots of people around the country are discovering a mystery fee of $9.84.
It's not another bank fee. It's a scam, according to the Better Business Bureau.
If you see the $9.84 from a company you've never done business with, it likely means your card was stolen at some point. If you try to Google the company's name, many people are finding it leads to a page on the internet that claims it's "customer support."
The scammers believe that if they just charge your account $9.84 you're not likely to notice. What they didn't count on were millions of Americans carefully going over their statements after security breaches at major retailers like Target. However, this scam is unrelated to the breaches, according to the BBB.

American folk legend and songwriter Pete Seeger, who wrote or co-wrote such folk standards as If I had a Hammer, Where have all the Flowers Gone and Turn! Turn! Turn! died Monday night at age 94. 
Born in New York City on May 3, 1919, Seeger was friends with fellow folk icon Woody Guthrie, who was part of a quartet called the Almanac Singers formed by Seeger in the 1940s. Seeger's music inspired Bob Dylan, who called him "a saint," Bruce Springsteen, the Dixie Chicks and Joan Baez, who once said of Seeger, "We all owe our careers to him."
Seeger was known, too, for his left-leaning political activism. He was a lifelong supporter of international disarmament and environmental causes. He was deeply involved in the American Civil Rights Movement, anti-war demonstrations and pacifist causes and the labor movement. 
The son of classical musicians, Seeger spent two years at Harvard before dropping out to live as a vagabond throughout most of the 1930s. He began writing music and singing then.
